Library offers SAGES assistance
Today the Faculty Senate Committee on University Libraries met with several staff from KSL and with Prof. Peter Whiting, Associate Dean of Arts and Sciences for SAGES, to discuss ways in which the library can assist faculty in helping students with their information literacy and research skills. The library can come to the SAGES classroom, or the faculty member can elect to have the class come to the library, which has the advantage of getting students into KSL and seeing how the place works "on site." Bill Claspy along with Reference Head Catherine Wells are the librarians heading up KSL's efforts to assist faculty. The Faculty Senate Committee also offer several useful pieces of advice for involving faculty and librarians in mutually beneficial partnerships in undergraduate student learning.
